Message from Principal Annie Mair

“Cleveland Elementary School is a Dual Language School where half of the student population is taught in English and Spanish. Our student body ranges from pre-school through grade five. As we build a strong academic foundation for our students, we want their elementary school experience to be rich and enjoyable. Our school motto is: “Success is not an option. It’s a must.”
